Another shot of the ugly shaped pumpkin. It was destined to grow over the blossom end right away. I didn't really try to fight it. One thing I do regret though is using a light blocking tarp as a cover. You see that white spot, well that is because zero filtered sun reached that location. Even a white sheet allows some sun through. The best colored pumpkins I have grown were when I used a thin burlap shelter built over the pumpkin. It allows a nice filtered light throughout the day.
